Point-spread: Calgary -9 ˝
Total: 52 ˝
Winnipeg’s current SU winning streak stands at seven games with last week’s win, but it was the first time it covered a spread in its last three outings. The total in that game went OVER the closing 50 ˝-point line and it has gone OVER in four of its last five games. The Blue Bombers got another strong effort from quarterback Matt Nichols. He only threw for 232 yards and a score, but he completed a highly efficient 72.7 percent of his 33 passing attempts.
The Stampeders have now won their last nine games SU and they are a highly profitable 8-1 ATS during this run. The total went OVER 54 against the RedBlacks last week and it has gone OVER in their last three games. In what is beginning to sound like a broken record, Bo Levi Mitchell was once again highly successful moving the ball up and down the field through the air with 353 yards passing and two touchdowns while completing 23-of-25 passing attempts.
The Blue Bombers’ last loss this season was against Calgary 33-18 on July 21 as 5 ˝-point home underdogs. The Stampeders have now won the last five meetings in this West Division tilt SU with a slight 3-2 edge ATS. The total has gone OVER or ended as a PUSH in the last three meetings.
